Ripten congratulates Infinity Ward on their release, and promptly gets a note back from COD4's Associate Producer.
What he says will have PS3 owners grinning from ear to ear. Finally, it appears that at least one developer "gets it".
maybe now they can finally stand up, pull their pants up and put down the lube.
plz to keep whatever you do private we don't wanna know.
ne ways...it shines brighter on the PS3...
XBOTS are our daddies. They have their way with us.
Infact that dude got luck he was even given the option of using lube.
That's how bad they own us.
It's just nature taking it's course.
i fav the ps3 but that was funny! btw - is that you Lightning?
Anywhoo - we should all return the favor to IW and buy this game!
Which means it was toned down so that the PS3 would appear to be equal to the 360?
Kinda like how Devs did the same sort of thing for the PS2/Xbox?
Hm, I've noticed that you're hate for the PS3 has been growing stronger and stronger
Good to hear
This game could be the beginning of something new, a common ground, and an end to the fanboy wars.
Agreed! I sure hope so, the fanboy stuff is just silly. We are all gamers and we ALL deserve to get good games. Period.
I doubt it as long as the PS3 install remains significantly smaller it's still gonna be treated like the ugly step child by developers.
I wish it'll die down too, but I saw 2 stupid arguments for COD4: arguments:
1. Which version is TRUE native 1080p and which version is upscaled
2. How many players can one system handle more than another on multiplayer
This'll probably carry over for every single multiplatform game until one system undoubtly wins, but if you have fanboy goggles your system will always win. And I agree with uh_what with the install base though...next week is gonna be a cool week for PS3 with dual shock 3 and the new white ps3, also Assasin's Creed. The 360 also has Assasin's Creed, then the fight of the exclusives will start the next week: Uncharted vs. Mass Effect. My money is on Mass Effect just because 1. the install base and 2. it's already getting good reviews and people going crazy for it, but I think Uncharted will put up a decent fight even though it's not getting as much attention...I still think it'll be reviewed and sell as well as Ratchet.
The title was just to draw the Xbots into here...just read the whole post...I am not trying to dis the Xbot 360.....
Since developers can do what they can now of the PS3 in only 1 year...which took 2 years on the Xbox 360...this shows that the PS3 is very powerfull and not that hard to develop for...look at COD4, Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank...GT5 Prologue....
Killzone 2 and MGS4 are gonna be even better than COD4....and burnout paradise and GTA4 are gonna be totally awesome since they got more development time....UT3 is gonna be rock solid......and haze is going to supprise a lot of people...the PS3 is now at $399...nobody who has a PS3 is going to want to play an old PS2 game now after playing COD4 at 1080p....and playing the other games that i mentioned....Sony made the right call by eliminating PS2 backwards compatibility to lower the cost......Sony is about to blow the market wide open.....the hardware is solid, the software is now solid...and 2008 is going to be a blowout year...all the current developers will look at Infinity Ward and see what can be done on the PS3 and they will all try to out do each other.....2008 is going to be killer...Maybe even EA will get off their balls and do something different in their next sports games...
Can we say 60 fps in 1080p in the next madden?
I think Madden will still suck next year.
This is also a shining example of a cross-platform title done right. Every video comparing the two shows a great looking and great running game on both the XBox 360 and PS3. Personally, I couldn't see any significant differences on either platform.
Hopefully other developers (cough... EA ;-) will get their act together and stop making excuses if Infinity Ward has been able to pull off this feat...
Kudos to Infinity Ward for pulling off one GREAT game.
but ill pick it up for my ps3 when the price drops a bit, my ps3 owning pals deserve a pwning to!
I've been playing this game for about 4 hours straight now and it is pretty amazing. The latter stages are pretty impressive. I applaud Infinity Ward for putting in the time to learn the PS3's architecture. As a way of saying thank you, I think all PS3 owners should go buy this game and send a message out to other developers that if you make a good game it will sell just as well as it does on the 360.
Oh yeah! This game is very smooth with hardly any framerate glitches. Almost as smooth as Resistence.
finding out who is more immature between xbots and ps fanboys is difficult.
however, i post in g4 forums asell.
I've been a user for a long time there, and I've never seen a ps fanboy change their username to something like "360 fanboy" and then say ridicolus things to impersonate how they act.
so far I've seen 5 360 fanboys do the same thing that "ps3 limps on and on" is doing now.
THAT'S WHAT SEPERATES PS FANBOYS FROM 360 FANBOYS, WHEN 360 FANBOYS ARE MATURE, THEY REALLY ARE THE EBST FANBOYS CAUSE YOU CAN HAVE A GOOD ARGUEMENT WITH THEM, BUT WHEN THEY'RE IMMATURE, THEY JUST SOUND LIKE A BUNCH OF PMSING 12 YEAR OLDS.
But shelling out 60 Euro's for a 5 hour campaign is a no-go for me. It sure looks awesome, but it's just not worth it if you're only into SP.
I'll hold on for ME, that atleast will last me for 40+ hours.
Good to see the PS3 version on par with the 360 version, but I'd still choose the 360 version over the PS3 version because of the thumbstick layout on the PS3. It's so damn awkward! Plus there's rumble in the 360 version.
Too bad though, I would have liked to give some gaming-love to my PS3 but it seems I'll have to hang on for some of the more interesting PS3 exclusives next year.
FANboys are immature too, but xbots just take it to a whole other level.
basically a flame war always starts with a 360 fanboys bashing the ps3.
Thats exactly the kind of terminology PS3 fanboys use.
Edit: If you really want to do something usefull, do as I did and report the clown below me as SPAM.
good while it lasted - consider your sorry ass reported
That is nice to see some developers actually, you know, make a good game. Can't say the same about the Midway, EA, and Ubi development teams though. God, Stranglehold, all those EA sports games, and the GRAW 2 delay were inexcusable. Still, I don't see why we need to heep praise for IW making the PS3 and 360 versions equal. All they did was give us a true multiplatform game. We should give IW praise for making a kickass shooter though. Many other 360 to PS3 games were not multiplatform, even if the developers claim it. Multiplatform games are equal and having R6 on one console, and R6 lite on another is not equal in my book.
I look forward to it. I played in the beta and was really impressed with the framerate and graphics quality. Does anyone know if the spawn system in multi-player has been fixed?
LOL The Sony fans can't even take in the good news without being rabid. There was more 360 fans that approved this post than there were Sony fans. Lowl
to be down here. F*cken sinking. We're all going under with our console. The hardcore ones anyway, like me.
The casual ones just bought XBOX 360's or Wii's. Depending if their hardcore gamers or just casual gamers.
hey everyone look at me, im a piece of $hit
Gamers know the truth the BEST game system Xbox 360. The BEST multimedia player PS#3. And we know how multi media hubs sell to gamers. 3DO, CD-i anyone??? I know only the loyal die hard Sony fans will buy it and that pool is drying up.
Excuse me but WHAT? Man you need to pass the rest of that some of that blunt. Clearly you got some of the to the left man. "Dryin up" lol! Thanks man i needed that.
Well I just came back from Jamaica and everyone I know wants a 360. They know that Sony is just a name. My cousin wants a Xbox 360 game system not a media hub. And the high grade there is WOW.
Ok so your gonna try the "Everyone i know card" Well All my Jamaican friends either have a PS3 or wants one. No thats a lie i got one friend who had a Xbox360 but he sold it the other day he didnt buy a PS3 as he's an admited Xbox360 fanboy but he says he'll buy a next one probly next year. so you see the "Everyone i know card can go either way." Besides i LIVE here and am tellin you Jamaica is predominantly Playstation country. 4 things ignite excitment in the majority of Jamaican gamers Playstation, Fifa, Gran Tourismo and Tekken.
However i do agree with you that we gots the highest grade my friend.
the BBC bashing of the PS#3 helped. And I have a PS#3 and my crib.
Well no the "BBC" assuming you mean't (BumBoClaat)bashing of the PS3 didnt really affect the preception of the PS3 here. Most of us have had and are still havin a great time with the PS1 and PS2 so the PS3 seems like logical step in the right direction as the Playstation has done us no wrong. Call it brand loyalty, stickin with the evil we know or chalk it up to if it anit broken don't fix it. The majority of us find the right balance on the PS3 balance interms of games ofcourse. Either way Sony has a hugh percentage of the population supportin their consoles. Just in the same way PSP outsells DS over here.
British Brocasting Corperation. You right my brother wants a PSP and I will send him one. But if you have both systems hooked up to an HDTV ( I have all 3 ) make a honest judgement, don't you want the best graphics and games???? Whatever dominates in the States usually dominates back home. NES, Super NES those were big when I was growing up. Gensis never really captured the States so it didn't really do anything back home. Xbox 1 didn't dominate but the 360 is. Pretty soon the 360 will be there dominating. If people never played the 360 they won't know. I have had every console since the Atari 2600 and as a gamer at heart we want the best.
Consistancy, familiarity and reliability thats what the Playstation brings to us. As you as a Jamaican or former resident you should know that the general offering of the Xbox and Xbox360 are not very well accepted here. Halo while it is a hugh franchise wasn't really transelated well over here. As i said Jamaica is predominantly Playstation country history has proven this and has continued to do so.
You say you everyone you know wants a Xbox360 but how many do you know that actually owns one? Because i can almost assure you that i know and there are alot more Jamaican's with PS3s than those with Xbox360s and some with both. This isn't a matter of fanboyisim rather of fact. I have friends in 3 of the few stores that sell both consoles in Kingston in all 3 establishments sales of the PS3 has been more than that of the Xbox360. Which farther proves my point Consistancy, familiarity and reliability, Jamaica is playstation country. Now can you imagine what sales are gonna be like when they launch GT5, MGS4, Soul Calibur and Tekken 6?
you from Kingston I'm from Montego Bay. My uncle and cousins have 360s and my cousins friends all want one but most can't afford it. Do you own a 360? Jamaica might be PS country but not for long, the states was PS country but look what happened. Trust me the box is the better gaming system it has better games better graphics and it's cheaper, Jamaicans are finding out. My boy can get PS#3 cheap almost Wii prices and I asked some of my cousins whatever they want and the response was 360. I mean get a PS#3 for free and they said no.
Remember when Nintendo use to rule same thing will happen to the PS#3. If you owned both you would play the 360 more.
Edit : you live in Jamaica and use the word Blunt. You probably use to live in the states or visit often.
Edit : PS#2 had the worst graphics last gen the gamecube stepped on it graphically. And do a comparison on an HD it if you can big difference.
Well no i don't own an Xbox360 however one of my friends own a gamin establishment (Gameshop) where they also rent games. So i play whatever Xbox360 games i feel. This superior graphics that you speak of i just do not see and i've done most of these comparisons myself and i don't see the superiority that you speak of. Newer games like COD4 (Perfect example) shows that this better graphics that your talkin about holds no water really. It's basically up to developers, developers who are now gettin the hang of the hardware. If your such a gamer then am sure you can remember the early days of playstation 2 when many claimed the Dreamcast had better graphics and that because it was easier to developer for than the PS2. All that changed about a year into it's life when developers got a better grasp of the hardware and we all know how that turned out. So if your strongest point is the visual quality of games i suggest you look again as times are changing.
You can draw reference to the old days of Nintendo but what you need to remember is no other console manufacturer has ever dominated 2 gens in a row. If you can understand that you will understand the level of brand strenght and loyalty that Sony has behind them. With the launch of the 40GB and many games comin i don't see how you are so confident in Sony loosing Jamaica.
However am out of bubbles and i've really enjoyed our lil debate, only time will prove our points...
This is how you develop multi-plat. I am so getting this game for my PS3
So damn lazy.......great job infinity
I cannot open the link. What does he say that would make ps3 owners grin ear to ear???
they just say they put alot of work into the ps3 version. basically it's not a port.
That they put as much work into the PS3 version as the 360 version, unlike many other developers. Ahem, EA, Midway.
now break 200K in sales for the week and things will indeed look quite rosy...
Ok before any buddy uses the achievments part of the bashing let me just say there are achievments built into the game see thats why I find that achievments agrument utterly usless and please PSN is a great service you wouldn't know because you don't have one No lag dedicated servers many great things you guys don't know about because you don't own one
From infinity ward.. Because COD4 looks better than any other multi plat game to date..
Stop coming up with crap excuses and porting games from the 360 to the ps3..
I don't get it... 1 developer is able to do what it takes to make a game on the PS3 as good as the xbox 360 version and Sony fanboys act as if the xbox 360 version is a piece of crap...
This is good news for PS3 owners.. but let's stop acting as if good news for PS3 owners is bad news for xbox 360 owners... you are doing the victory dance because finally the PS3 version does not suck? and you want to use this to flame the xbox 360? dude... the xbox 360 version is as good...
"Since developers can do what they can now of the PS3 in only 1 year...which took 2 years on the Xbox 360..." you are dumb arent you... they started developing this game at the sametime... are you implying that the xbox 360 version too one year more than the PS3 version to make?
Calm down, guy. We're very busy over here.
from the 360 crowd
are you guys just mad because your days of gloating over pixels and framerate have come to a end
and all in less then a year
I will put this first year line up of games against the 360 any day
I have added a few to my ignore list and i advise you all take bubbles from tool bags that start flame wars over a game that is getting 9's across the board
good for ps3 owners.....really awesome this was turned into flame bait...some of you people need to get your heads outta your A$$es....ps3 and xbox 360s fanboys alike...
other then Madden (EA) and Splinter Cell what ports have sucked?
i have played GRAW Vegas Oblivan and i can say those games ruled!
This is where all ur hate and banter is making ur mind ill. You take a number and turn it into a fact but fact is the ports that i have played have been mostly good and in the case of GRAW and Oblivan i found to be better
Vegas was a pretty bad port. CoD 3 was a bad port as well.
All multiplat games are all going to be as good as the 360, since the devs want the versions to be close graphically. So now the PS3 multiplat will never see the full potential of the PS3.
Just kidding guys calm down :)
dont tell me about delays! Those games where new to me
Next up, Burnout Paradise. (Teh other multiplat NOT ported from the 360 to PS3) Should be fantastic on both.
